- Published on Aug 14, 2018
- Over the years, researchers, archaeologists and your average Joe next door, have all stumbled upon things that are way ahead of the times they have been traced back to and today we’ll have a look at but a few of these out-of-place items.

7 - The Stone of the Pregnant Woman…
When it comes to ancient monuments, there’s generally one big question hanging over everyone’s heads, and that’s “how on earth did they manage to move those ginormous stones with modern engineering?” Generally, it’s with ropes, water, makeshift cranes and the like, but then you get the Stone of the Pregnant Woman, and it throws that theory out the window. This Roman monolith weighs 1,000 tons and it’s a mystery how it got there in the first place. Legend has it that women who touch the stone will fall pregnant on the spot… not a theory I’d like to test out in a hurry!
6 - The Dropa Stones…
Dr. Chi Pu Tei led an expedition into the Baian-Kara-Ula in China in 1938 and found something quite amazing. In some caves that the team were exploring, they discovered hundreds of stone discs buried under thick layers of dust. The discs all looked quite similar to records, all circular in shape with a spiral groove running throughout. The discs are believed to be over 10,000-years old and each spiral contains the tiniest hieroglyphics. When the discs were translated, the story the hieroglyphics told was hard to believe. It told the tale of spaceships having crashed into nearby mountains, led by people known as Dropa. Unfortunately for Chi Pu Tei, the scientific community ridiculed his story, and he went into exile in Japan. A team of Russian researchers asked to study the discs and they were sent a few. They said the discs hummed or vibrated in an unusual rhythm as though an electric current passed through them. More than that, we’re not sure, as research stopped shortly thereafter.
5 - Gobekli Tepe…
Again, not an actual artefact, but still a discovery that has made people rethink their original way of viewing life’s time-line. It’s generally believed that humans first settled around 8,000 BC, but when Gobekli Tepe was found in 1994, that theory went bust. This rural area in Turkey has people now thinking that humans first settled around the 10th millennium B.C. Thy have found huge stone pillars with carvings of animals on them. It’s kind of like the chicken and the egg scenario - which came first? Did people build settlements first and then look for animals or did the animals draw people to build a settlement because they knew there’d be enough to survive on? What do you think?
4 - Roman Dodecahedrons…
The only thing that researchers can agree with the Roman Dodecahedrons is that it has 12 sides, other than that, well it’s open for debate. These contraptions were made between AD 100 and 300 and sport a hollow centre. Some theories as to its use include weapons, religious symbols, something to do with zodiac signs or kids toys. Around 100 of them have been found wherever there was a Roman influence. What the experts do find odd is that the Romans were meticulous about writing everything down, and yet there is nothing about these strange little gadgets.
3 - The Saqqara Bird…
It was during an excavation of the Pa-di-Imen tomb in Saqqara, Egypt that the Saqqara Bird was discovered. It’s thought to date back to 200 BC and to some it might look like a little wooden bird, but to others it’s a replica of an ancient Egyptian glider. Scale models have been built to prove that it does indeed fly, and the models proved rather successful. There are hieroglyphs on the side of the bird which translated means ‘The Gift of Amon’ and ‘I want to fly’. What the researchers do tend to agree on is that was meant as part of a mast-head to be used on sacred boats.
2 - The Sacsayhuaman walls…
Again, not an artefact, but it’s walls that we’re intrigued with next, and they’re located near the city of Cuzco, Peru. Spanish conquistadores were amazed that people from 1100 were able to build such a structure when they deemed them to be ignorant and not very intelligent. Why they’re so intriguing is that the 3 concentric walls are made with limestone blocks that weighed 300 tons each and then without mortar or cement, are placed in such a way that not even a sharp knife can be wedged between the stones. Researchers have tried to replicate this on a smaller scale, but with no success.
